Seniors Group Endorses Tim Kaine for Senate

Today, the Alliance for Retired Americans proudly endorsed Tim Kaine for U.S. Senate.

“Tim Kaine stands against cuts to Social Security and Medicare, including attempts at privatization and cutting benefits. He has shown us he is committed to maintaining and improving the quality of life for older Americans,” said Barbara J. Easterling, President of the Alliance for Retired Americans and a Virginia resident.

Ron Thompson, President of the Virginia Alliance for Retired Americans said, “Tim Kaine is a friend of seniors. He is the candidate that Virginia retirees can trust to protect their interests. He understands how important programs like Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security are to Virginia – and not only to seniors – to people of all ages.”

Kaine also supports many practical initiatives to provide more affordable health care to older Americans, including allowing the Medicare program to negotiate lower prices for prescription drugs.

The Alliance for Retired Americans represents over 4 million retirees and community activists, including over 53,000 in Virginia.
